It works with Ubuntu 12.04 LTR. This is the theme that I use so I will have to update it before 12.04 is not supported by Ubuntu, but that's a long way off. Sorry.

I use Thunderbird so I never caught this. I should have a fix on the next version, but it will be a while before I have time

I like this, except for two things.

The overlay scrollbars are invisible for gtk3 applications on my system (Ubuntu Precise). And Thunderbird just doesn't look right at all... and I use it a lot.

After your last upgrade, it is still the same...
And there is also one other issue, I forgot to mention before... The slected/suggested buttons are too white, so it becomes inconsistant with the rest of the looks, and the tekst becomes unreadable.

What version of Ubuntu and Gnome are you using?

sorry I didn't notice your comment before. I am looking into it. i'm on ubuntu 12.04 gnome 3.2.1. I believe you can change the text and background colors of the thunderd bird app on the gtkrc file on the gtk-2.0 folder right below the "#firefox color issues fix" comment

Interesting... I have Ubuntu 12.04 too, and I have Gnome 3.4.1. No backports, standard repos.

The different versions of the Gnome base we use could explain the glitches on buttons and overlay scrollbars. But I don't know how it comes that you have Precise with Gnome 3.2...

I don't use Ubuntu so don't have that problem (anymore) but I plan to try and make your fix as widely known as possible

Thanks. & I really like the look of this theme. ;-)

Paste this into your /gtk-2.0/gtkrc or the ~/.gtkrc (you can create it if it doesn't exist) Can also be inserted in the styles/*.rc files if your gtk-2.0 theme uses them.


----> cut & paste <----
style "ff"
{
text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
base[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
}
class "GtkInvisible" style "ff"
widget "GtkInvisible" style "ff"

----> cut & paste <----

Should work with just about every theme. If you sort out how to make the text cursor visible using this I'd appreciate knowg how you did it.

I applied your fix. It works well. I decided to have red text instead for those that do overwrite the webpage color settings, like me. Also, I've noticed that some text fields (well I only saw 1 occasion so far) still have the black background, so having a text color visible in both black and white backgrounds is better i believe. Thanks.

as far as the cursor, mine is slightly visible. It depends on the ntext_color: value specified for gtk_color_scheme

Glad you tried it out, it lends itself to customization.

I made some improvements, fixed the text cursor problem. I posted the entire fix in the changelog on the Cherry Bomb v3.4 Gnome shell theme.

Hopefully this will prove itself & be adopted a little more universally. I've done the userChrome.css patch in the past to make some dark themes usable but this is a little more elegant I think. This may be overridden by the userChrome.css method so if you've applied that you may have to get rid of it.
